I am working on the Patons book 1318 “Cardigan with eyelet pattern”.
According the the pattern, I have to knit 3 separate pieces: 1 piece bodice and 2 sleeves.
I casted on 211 sts. I am done from the waist band up to the armhole. Now I need to divide the piece to shape armhole and neckline. Here is what the pattern says:
[B]Divide for Back and Front:[/B]
Note: Care must be taken when shaping in this lacy patt. Do not work a K2tog or sl1,K1,psso, unless the corresponding yfwd can be worked and vice versa.
Next row: Patt8, sl1,K1, psso (Right Front edge dec), patt 37, castt of next 12 sts, patt 93 incl st rem on right-hand needle after casting off, cast off next 12 sts, patt the last 10 sts, K2tog(Left Front edge dec), patt to end.
Cont on last 46 sts for Left Front.
Keeping the pattern correct, dec one sts at the armhole edge in every foll alt row 6 time, AT THE SAME TIME dec one st (inside 8 sts as before) at front edge in every foll 4th row 11 times, then in every foll 6th row until 26 sts rem.
Work 5 rows.
What confused me the most is:
every foll 4th/6th row: start counting from where?
dec 6 times, 11 times, but only work 5 rows?
Please explain in detail. Many many many thanks to you.
